Calcasieu Pass export terminal, Sabine Pass train 6 expected by year’s end


LNG growth just keeps coming to Louisiana.

As Natural Gas Intelligence reports, indications are that both the Calcasieu Pass export terminal and a sixth train at the Sabine Pass facility could be up and running by the end of the year.

Venture Global LNG Inc. sent an implementation plan to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this month for the hot oil systems at Calcasieu Pass, which was also authorized to introduce feed gas to a gas turbine generator. Cheniere Energy Inc. was also recently granted approval to operate its hot oil system for the new train at Sabine Pass.

Cheniere management said earlier this month the sixth train at Sabine Pass was 90% complete and expected to enter service in the first half of next year. Venture Global issued a tender earlier this year to supply 12 cargoes from Calcasieu Pass as soon as October in an indication that the terminal could start exporting commissioning cargoes by the end of the year.

The TransCameron pipeline that would feed Calcasieu Pass has also been cleared by federal regulators to enter service, Natural Gas Intelligence reports. It is already receiving limited amounts of gas as Calcasieu Pass nears commissioning.
